MFTWSC203 - May Your Holidays Sparkle

Thanks for stopping by today! I am playing along with this week's MFT's Wednesday Sketch Challenge,  MFTWSC203All of the details about the sketch challenge are available on the MFT blog. I hope you get a chance to play along!

Here is my take on the sketch. 

I started by creating my background. I used Smooth White Card Stock and the Snowflake Fusion Cover-Up Die-namics to cut the pattern background. Then I cut the background panel again with with a die in the Blueprints 10, backing the pattern with a piece of white glittered card stock. 

The sentiment is from the Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set, stamped in Timber Green Hybrid Ink, and die cut with the Stitched Oval STAX Die-namics

I used the Fishtail Flags STAX Die-namics and the Horizontal Stitched Strips Die-namics to added the two strips down the cards. The snowflake is cut with the Let It Snowflake Die-namics

On the inside I stamped another sentiment from the Seasonal Sentiments Stamp Set.

Here are the products I used to create my card:

Guest Designer for the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Pin Cushion

Hi and thanks for stopping by today. I am so excited to be the Guest Designer for the new Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. Curtain Call is such a fun challenge, always full of inspiration, and a really amazing design team!

We have a new sponsor, STAMPlorations, for the Curtain Call Inspiration: Pin Cushion!  A randomly selected participant in the Pin Cushion challenge will receive a $15 gift certificate to use at  STAMPlorations, while the LEAD will be invited as a Guest Designer in a future challenge!

And here's my take on the challenge! My very first craft was sewing! I took inspiration from the pin cushions and I used the My Favorite Things Stitched With Love Stamp Set and Die-namics for my card. The background of the card front is done with a stencil and ink. Inspired by the fabric pin cushions I decided to add a fabric yo-yo to my card. 

If you have a circle die a yo-yo is easy to create. Just use the die to cut a circle from fabric; the size of the circle will determine the size of the yo-yo. Run a quick basting stitch around the circle and pull your basting threads to the middle and tie off your threads. Then just add a button to the center. 

Here's how I finished off the inside of my card.
